Traditional baked, N.E. style whitefish

sherry monfils


I have made New England style fish w/ the usual Ritz cracker/butter crumb mix & love it but wanted the fresh fish flavor to be more pronounced. So I added the 2 breadcrumbs and herbs and voila...perfect. Easy, quick and buttery delicious!
Great served w/ rice pilaf and fresh green beans.
